I would love for this to be a bigger deal, but unfortunately, my surprise didn't work out quite as I had hoped.
My surprise was....I dyed my hair! For the first time in my life!
Now, working with red dyes can be sort of scary (or at least that's the impression I had), so I'll just tell you right now, my hair looks fine right now, not weird or anything.
It's just not as bright and colorful as I had hoped
So, in the next few days, I'm either going to go try to find the same dye again and just repeat the process, or see if some friends of mine that have experience with this would feel like coming over and helping me (and maybe taking me to a beauty supply store for something more legit).
When I woke up this morning, I could see the color a bit more in the daylight and since it was dry, so I wanted to take some pictures of it in the sunlight to see if the color would show up any more.
It didn't really. But I got some great photos out of the occasion, thanks to my wonderful boyfriend who is always willing to take pictures of me. Because he's super sweet, gosh shush whatever I don't know shut up about it *smirk*.
It's hard to narrate unwillingly gushing about someone in text.
Hopefully, if all goes well, my hair will be way more burgundy-ish in the next week or so. But boy, was that a toxic-smelling experience last night.
